What is a Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasty, also known as a nose job, can bring harmony to your facial features by adjusting the structure or symmetry of your nose.

Benefits of Rhinoplasty

There are many benefits to improving the aesthetic or structural imbalances of your nose. An unflattering nose can be distracting to others or can make you look older than you are, but restoring facial harmony can boost your self-confidence.

A deviated septum results in tissue obstructions that can impact your ability to breathe easily, sleep soundly, and stay healthy. Rhinoplasty can help your nose drain properly, reducing the risk of sinus infections and colds. Removing obstructions can help you breathe easier throughout the day and alleviate symptoms of sleep apnea -- a dangerous sleep disorder.

Improved circulation of oxygen can help you look and feel better. You may notice that you think more clearly and feel energized throughout the day. You will also look well-rested and vibrant after better sleep and increased circulation of oxygen to your skin.

How Does Rhinoplasty Work?

There are two types of rhinoplasty: open and closed. Open rhinoplasty is performed using a small, discreet incision on the underside of your nose in between your nostrils. Incisions are completely concealed within the nose during a closed technique.

Dr. Kwak will then reshape the cartilage and bone in the nose to make the necessary changes to the bridge, tip, and nostrils. Cartilage grafts can be used to add volume where necessary. The septum is also straightened and obstructions are removed. After all changes have been made, the skin is gently re-draped and the incision is closed.

After a Rhinoplasty

Rhinoplasty is an outpatient procedure, so you can return home the same day. Initial recovery is expected to take one to two weeks. The delicate, precise surgical techniques used during the procedure result in virtually undetectable scars. Your nose will look natural and blend in with the rest of your features in perfect harmony. Whether you have trouble breathing due to a deviated septum or simply don’t like the shape of your nose, rhinoplasty with Dr. Kwak can help.

Why Choose Dr. Kwak

It's hard to overstate the importance of choosing the right surgeon for your rhinoplasty. Any surgery can involve risk, but in the case of cosmetic procedures, the risks go beyond the usual medical issues. You are choosing to have this procedure for aesthetic purposes and it’s possible for a surgeon to do a perfectly safe, workmanlike job and still fall far short of your goals.
